10st 13lb

J: Ned Fox

T: Venetia Williams

Off the mark in Britain with clearcut success here (3m, good to soft) in November and added to his tally at Taunton (2m7f, soft) in February; below form on latest outing and seemingly overlooked by Charlie Deutsch here but further progress is possible if this longer trip suits.

J: Charlie Deutsch

T: Venetia Williams

Successful in two of his last four starts over fences, the latest when beating three rivals at Taunton (2m7f, soft) last month; twice well beaten in between those wins and despite that latest success, it's debatable whether deep ground is what he really wants; could be vulnerable if conditions remain testing.

Still to add to his sole Taunton success (2m7f) in 2022 but he posted a good second of four on the back of a wind op back there last month; enters calculations eased 1lb.

Point/bumper winner who has placed form over hurdles; not a particularly solid option judged on his two chase efforts since returning from lengthy layoff, but market support should be noted.

Form & Verdict

Now 0-14 after two pull-ups but 3m5f looked too far for him last time and he's on a competitive mark on last season's best efforts.

Made it 0-13 when pulled up at Exeter last month; it's hard to be confident on the back of that but he's on a competitive mark on last season's best efforts and if returning to form he might not be far away.
